Product liability: Defective drugs injure victims in many ways

One of the most important advancements in medical care is the development of life-saving medicines. Examples of these drugs include antibiotics, chemotherapy and blood pressure regulation meds.

Like other products, drugs can enter the marketplace with dangerous defects. For example, if the drug manufacturer pushed the product onto the market without proper testing, it may injure users or worsen their conditions. Fortunately, victims harmed by faulty drugs can pursue a product liability claim to recover compensation for the harm they suffered.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers have a legal duty to provide the public with safe medications. This means properly testing the product and making sure drugs ingredients are safe for use. When they fail in this duty, injured victims can seek a legal remedy for their harm.

Some drugs are "unavoidably unsafe," which simply means that the risks associated with the medicine cannot be avoided. In these cases, manufacturers must warn the public about any dangers the drug may pose. Informing users about the product's risks enables patients to make sound decisions about whether to take the medicine.

We want to assure readers in the state of Florida that the law can help if you or a family member has suffered injuries from a defective drug. Pursuing a product liability claim is an effective way to accomplish this goal. This allows you to acquire funds to recover from your injuries and resume your normal life.
